After prayerful consideration and many heartfelt discussions with my family, I have decided not to run for the 5th Congressional District.
My transition to the private sector working for the National Taxpayers Union has been rewarding, while affording me the opportunity to enjoy some personal freedom. My love for my family motivated me to become involved in politics, and now they have helped me come to my decision to prioritize family and friends in a different way.
For 16 years, I was honored to serve Wisconsin, and I was privileged to be the GOP nominee for U.S. Senate last year. I will forever be humbled by the support I’ve received from so many.”
